brennan, will face the senate intelligence committee for his confirmation hearing as the director of central intelligence. one of the very first thing president obama did you might remember when he first became president at the start of his first term in 2009 was that he dropped the bush administration's torture policy. remember, he did that right away. he issued an executive order two davis taking office to doubly, triply extra ban torture in the united states. at the start of that first term, newly elected president obama also wanted to nominate john brennan to be the head of the cia. but he didn't end up putting him forward. john brennan ended up taking his name out of contention for that nomination because of opposition to him being chosen. and the opposition centered on the fact that john brennan had been deputy executive director of the cia during the bush days. during the bad old torturing prisoners days of the george w. bush administration. so you're going to have a brand-new president who bans torture, but then you're going to put a guy who was there for the whole torture

the past four years has been john brennan, president obama's homeland security advisor and his pick to become the next director of the central intelligence agency. in may, 2010, mr. brennan publicly declared that we do not describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenant of islam, meaning to purify one's self or one's community. and there's nothing holy or legitimate or islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children, closed quote. mr. speaker, the unavoidable reality is that self-described jihadists have routinely gone about murdering innocent women and children for decades. it should alarm us all that neater john brennan nor -- neither johnen nor hillary clinton nor seemingly anyone else in the obama administration has fully recognized the scope of this jihadist threat. they seem blind to the fact that the islamist and the jihadists here and elsewhere in the world, in the west, are even now engaging in a previolent form of holy war against infidels and the free world. and the administration has refused to face the fact tha
